I have a car that is intermittently overheating. I have replaced the thermostat, the bottom hose and the electric fan so far. It still has issues. So here is the meat of what has happened. I eventually took the thermostat completely out just replacing the seal to find out if that was the issue. No it still overheats. The radiator is a dual core performance radiator and I know that is ok. I checked flow on it and there is no issue there. The system bleeds into the overflow quite a bit but that is not unexpected as I do not trust the cap. Now I know that it cant be the pump because then it would overheat constantly. Besides that the pump is so simple I couldn't imagine it going out. I also thought that maybe the belt was slipping but that would make a great deal of noise which it is not doing. Are there any other issues that I may be missing? The engine seems to run fine otherwise.
